SYNOPSIS

sabcmd [options] <stylesheet> [<input> [<output>]] [assignments]
sabcmd [options] -batch-xml <input> [<stylesheet> [<output>]]+ [assignments]
sabcmd [options] -batch-xsl <stylesheet> [<input> [<output>]]+ [assignments]

DESCRIPTION

sabcmd is a command line interface to Sablotron XSLT processor. You can use is to transform XML files with XSLT stylesheets.

The only required parameter is a stylesheet; this is a URI of an XSLT stylesheet to be used for the transformation process. If you omit an input file, the standard input is used. In addition, you can specify an output file. If no output file is given, the output is sent to the standard output.

sabcmd can also run in a batch mode to process single input file with multiple stylesheets (--batch-xml) or to apply a stylesheet to multiple input files (--batch-xsl).

Assignments allow to pass parameters and named buffers to the processor. The assignments have always the form of
name1=value1 name2=value2 ...
where name is either an ASCII string for named buffers or an ASCII string with the leading ’$’ sign for parameters. (Note that you need to use the right quotes to prevent the shell interpreter from performing an expansion of variables).

OPTIONS

Option can be of two forms - short or long. If some options have values, the values are separated with a whitespace for short options and with a equal sign (’=’) for long options.
-L mylog.log
is the same as
--log-file=mylog.log
